ALL ACCESS has confirmed that MICHAEL MARTIN has joined CBS/SAN FRANCISCO as VP/Programming at Adult Hits KMVQ, Hot AC KLLC, Alternative KITS, and KFRC-A. He will not oversee News KCBS-A, but will be day-to-day PD at KMVQ.
MARTIN, who replaces MIKE PRESTON, was most recently with CLEAR CHANNEL/LOS ANGELES, (NET NEWS 12/30/08), told ALL ACCESS, "I'm so excited to be a part of a radio company run by radio people who actually focus on the product above the process. SAN FRANCISCO is an exciting market and the CBS/SAN FRANCISCO cluster will be an exciting one to listen to in 2009 and beyond. My goal is to really stir it up and win big. Will we win? YES! Will that mean others must lose? YES!"
CBS RADIO/SF SVP/Market Mgr. DOUG HARVILL said, "MICHAEL has proven repeatedly that he builds exciting radio stations that earn big ratings. I'm pleased to welcome him back home to SAN FRANCISCO." MARTIN had formerly programmed crosstown Top 40/Rhythmics KYLD & KMEL.
